Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

2021: Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

Lights along the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently. The streaks of light along the far shoreline are from a succession of fishing boats heading out to compete in an end of summer fishing derby.

It was actually much darker than it appears to be by the photo, I was guessing the framing in the dark.

Monochrome Monday: 13th September 2021

Cloud over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise last Saturday.

It was a nice change for the cloud not to be storm clouds this summer.

Another outing for the TTArtisan 17mm lens and another monochrome conversion that I added some film grain to.

34 Minutes Before Sunrise

2021: 62 Seconds 34 Minutes Before Sunrise

Clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn this morning.

For a change this summer they weren’t storm clouds. I wasn’t expecting this much cloud as the local weather station was reporting mainly clear skies when I got up for the sunrise.

A 62 second exposure achieved by me standing behind the camera holding the shutter release down, because I’ve misplaced the remote release for the camera.

Rest

One Word Sunday: Rest

A windblown Great Blue Heron resting on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise.

I spent over an hour with the bird, slowly working my way closer. After a while it was pretty much ignoring me and was still there when I headed home for some breakfast.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Rest prompt.

Reflections in the Ripples

2021: Reflections and Ripples on Colpoy's Bay

Ripples and reflections on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise last Sunday.

Something of a rare occurrence for me recently, I took my camera bag of auto-focus zoom lenses down to the bay rather than my lightweight back to basics kit.

Light Painting on the Shoreline

2021: Light Painting the Tree Trunks

Another unplanned experiment with light painting on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently.

For this version I used a small flashlight (torch) to paint the tree trunks in the foreground during the 30 second exposure. Another test of the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.

This is also a contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere photo challenge.
